Desserts that won’t spoil your diet

If you are anything like me, your sweet tooth often ruins your days healthy eating regimen. While desserts can be high in sugar, fat and calories, there are healthy options available that still allow for a sweet ending to a meal (thank goodness!) Try some of my favorites when you need something sweet.

Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich: Around 140 calories and comes in various flavors: Mint, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Peanut Butter

Hot Cocoa (Sugar Free): Filling, sweet, and around 25 calories per packet

Smart Ones brand Desserts: Individually portioned and come in decadent flavors of brownie sundae, strawberry shortcake, key lime pie, fudge brownie, and even eclairs. All around 150-200 calories

Dessert-flavored yogurt: Red velvet cake, apple crumb cake, key lime pie, boston cream pie, strawberry shortcake, chocolate raspberry, and even cheesecake are options available in light yogurts averaging about 150 calories

Fudge pops and fruit popsicles (sugar free or 100% fruit): Portion controlled and super sweet for about 20-100 calories

Chocolate cereal (Chocolate Cheerios or Special K Chocolate Delight) with skim milk: Stick to the serving size for a chocolate fix at about 150 calories

Dessert flavored rice cakes: Tasty flavors include caramel, apple cinnamon, and chocolate

“Live each moment as if it was your last. In case it is, eat dessert first."
